This is an outstanding B&B in every way, and we've stayed in many, as well as running our own in the past. The owner, Caroline Anderson, is a thoughtful and friendly hostess, with plenty of useful local knowledge. The house is full of character, and Caroline has furnished it beautifully. The very spacious guests' lounge and dining room, as well as the bedrooms, invite one to relax. Every detail seems to have been considered, including the availability of fresh milk for tea and coffee in the bedrooms. There is an unusually large choice of cooked breakfasts; we stayed two nights and enjoyed subtly-herbed scrambled eggs on toast with bacon, as well as the full English. This followed an imaginative fruit platter, though, of course, cereals are available. Lea is ten minutes' easy drive from Ross-on-Wye, which is an excellent centre for exploring the Forest of Dean, the Malverns, the Black Mountains, and the delights of Herefordshire. As well as Ross itself, Abergavenny, Monmouth, Hereford, Ledbury and Tewkesbury are full of beauty and interest – and this list of easily accessible places is far from complete.
